Union Elementary students enjoying new playground

Ponca City Now - May 19, 2016 2:45 pm

Union Elementary School recently received new playground equipment, including adaptive equipment to allow all students to play.

“Union Elementary has been blessed with this gift. All of our students now have access to playground equipment," Union principal Dr. Trina Resler said. "Ponca City Rotary was the main organization but many others donated and helped make the project a reality. There is a swing that we can use with a wheelchair, an adaptive swing and then a regular swing where kids can work on motor skills and strength. The play panels work as a safety barrier as well as for interactive play.”
